    Yes, it is in bark mix. And, it is over due for repotting, but disturbing the roots is the last thing I want to do.

    I just repotted my Ang. Lemforde White Beauty and two Ang. magdalenae. This was my first time repotting them in 2-3 years. So far I haven't seen a big change. One of the older plant's bottom leaves is slowly turning yellow, but that's the only negative sign so far. I'm nervous.

    I also have an Ang. Lemforde White Beauty, which I have had for 15 years. It blooms for me every year. As a matter of fact, it is in spike. It also has started putting a keiki first time.

    WoW!!! Congrats! I would love one ; But it's big and I'm a windowsill grower with not much space...But it has given me the idea that this would be a super Birthday present for my mum. Thanks for posting!

    Hi, Nenella. It started with one growth plant YEARS ago. This is like 15+ years old.

    Btw, I started growing orchids when I was 5. Kidding!

    Naoki; I thought you told me you were 2 years old when you started raising orchids and that you hung mounted miniatures on your crib.................Now you say you were 5 years old..................................Gee, that really does age you! By the way, four blooms should double your pleasure. AL
